I hope they brought good luck! These little lady bug rock critters were so much fun to make! Although I ended up with over 100 ladybugs, I am convinced each child could have quickly found the one that they made because they were all a little bit different. Children went outside to collect a smooth stone that they wanted to use (I brought in several as back up). If you have ever walked with a child and collected rocks, then you know how special a rock can be!
We did a coat of white paint and then a layer of red. Everyone painted the face, stripe on the back and dots on the wings (with a cotton swab). We ended up including a short poem and giving it to the Mothers for Mother’s day.
